The Iowa Games is a non-for-profit organization that relies heavily on its volunteers. In most cases, a volunteer receives a T-shirt, lunch and an occasional sign of gratitude from an athlete or spectator.

For many of our volunteers, it is the feeling of accomplishment, sharing in others’ success or just having fun that keeps them returning year after year.

This award is designed to reward our volunteers and give them the praise and recognition they deserve for effortlessly giving their time and talents year after year.
